It seems Nieminen is finally over his big slump this season.

Getting Nystrom as Jarkko's coaching is getting some results now.

Nieminen can be in the worst form of his life but he always brings it for the slams.

Well done Jarkko, good to see him doing well again

Good tournament for Martin nevertheless

Martin :sad: good effort anyway, a shame the TB went to the other side :(

Yes, it's amazing how he can produce in GS :eek:

Good to see Jarkko winning two matches in a row where it most matters :D

Jakke :yeah:

some amazing tennis in the 2nd set, some of the best in his career according to his own words

no chance against Rafa :sad: Will they play each other in all the Slams this year?

Rafa will probably play 4 lefties in a row, with Verdasco waiting in the 4th round. How unreal isnt that?

In 2006, Nadal's one unbeaten season on clay, Nieminen was closer to beating him than anyone except Federer in the Rome final - a 6-4, 4-1 lead in the quarters of Barcelona.

Well done for Jarkko, hopefully his terrible slump after the AO is now behind him.

I think that surprisingly enough Nieminen has his best chances against Nadal on clay, the main reasons being that Nadal's cross-court forehand goes to his forehand and, perhaps more importantly, his 2nd serve cannot be attacked as easily on clay. Still I doubt Jarkko has the form to make tomorrow's match interesting enough.

Nadal has no problem with these type of players as his first 2 matches have shown. 3 lefties in a row? I guess Nadal is possibly bringing more lefties to tennis. Vamos

Nieminen is a rare crafty player today. But Nadal is gonna rip him a new one.

This is gonna be one hell of a snorefest. Sth like 7:5 or 6:4 6:3 6:1. Hope Verdasco wins his match, cause that would mean another leftie for Nadal and I'm also a bit of a statistics freak
